MILFORD — The Milford Public Library is excited to add the No. 1 New York Times bestselling series “Wings of Fire” by Tui T. Sutherland to its children’s department.
The books portray mythical adventures full of excitement, suspense, friendship and ultimate surprises. The series follows five young dragonets, and each book is told from a different dragon’s point-of-view. These young dragons have been chosen, according to a cryptic prophecy, to help bring an end to a long war. Will the young dragons accept their fate or fight it?
Follow their story as they navigate responsibilities, friendships, battles and more.
